Update from Gregson Green, February 2021
In line with Charity commission regulations Gregson Green has to submit the accounts for 2019/20 by the end of January.
The independent accountant has reviewed the accounts and as we have not been able to hold an AGM they have been approved by the Trustees and Steering group and have been submitted to the Charity Commission as required.
Whilst we made a profit in 2019/20 financial year, which included an increased income from rents, we have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, and this will continue to affect the Charity for the foreseeable future.
The community centre has been closed to regular user groups since March 2019 and we have not been able to hold any fundraising events. It is not clear when the groups will be able to return and when fundraising events can restart. The monies we have already raised towards a new hall remain in the bank account and slightly increase each month with the Pledge a Pound income. A discretionary grant secured from SRBC, has ensured that the essential expenditure i.e. utilities and insurance for the community centre have been covered, whilst we have no income from rents. Hopefully it will last until we can reopen.
If anyone has any questions about the accounts or the charity please us the contact page.
